State Trooper Could Face Another Molestation Trial

Posted: Updated:

WARREN COUNTY, MS (WLBT) - Attorney General, Jim Hood, says he will seek another criminal trial in Warren County against Mississippi state trooper, Dane Davenport.

Hood tells The Vicksburg Post that Davenport will face four counts of fondling a young child.

Davenport was acquitted last month on five counts of child sexual battery and molestation in the same indictment.

He was also acquitted last year on a related molestation charge in Oktibbeha County.

Davenport's first trial in September 2008 resulted in a deadlocked jury.

He has been on unpaid administrative leave since his nine-count indictment in January of 2008.
